One of my favourite things to relax is to look at beautiful yoga pictures and videos on the internet.
The other day I came across this amazing one leg chakrasana (wheel pose) and I just couldn’t resist comparing her posture (wearing lilac) with mine (wearing black). Feeling judgemental and critical about myself.
Wait a minute…. I’m losing the whole point here! (Moment of reflexion and awareness).
Yoga starts from where you are. It’s not about how good you can do it, but about the good it can do to you.
Postures are beautiful and I’ll always aim to make them the best I can, improving every time. But leaving the criticism out of my practice. Accepting where I am today.
